A warning alarm goes off in the coastal New Jersey town of Sea Bright. Residents bracing for flooding from a new storm that's bearing down on communities. A nerve-racking time for those who lived through Hurricane Sandy, like workers at this grocery store. SOUNDBITE: SEA BRIGHT RESIDENT EVA GRIMALDI, SAYING: "We were shut down until May, the end of May we managed to open back up... Hopefully it won't be that bad. We do flood a lot even with normal rain here." The coastal storm brought gusty winds and flooded several streets. Emergency management officials say they will keep their eye on the storm for the next several days. SOUNDBITE: READ MURPHY FROM THE OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, SAYING: "Northeaster will have the tendency to push waters in and up the river the way we face this river this will inundate the downtown area ...mostly cause we are low here." And for a town still trying to recover from Hurricane Sandy, people here aren't taking any chances.
